Trump's remaining 5 Pennsylvania lawsuits rejected
Five Trump campaign lawsuits were dismissed by Pennsylvania judges. No ballot fraud has been reported.
Despite a clear procedure for voting and submission of ballots for voting only in a specific form, thousands of voters mis-typed their ballots, which led to lawsuits.
State judges reviewed Trump's claims and labeled the unfilled or misspelled ballots “minor irregularity,” and any such votes this year will count.
"In future elections, I would treat the date and sign requirement as mandatory ... with the omission of either item sufficient without more to invalidate the ballot in question,” Justice David N. Wecht wrote.
Three other justices, Justice Kevin M. Dougherty, Chief Justice Thomas G. Saylor and Justice Sallie Updyke Mundy, also collectively decided to accept ballots that contained violations in this year, but in the next election to sort out such violations more stringently.
The total number of ballots that were contested by the Trump campaign is 10,678. All of them will be counted in the current vote.
